The first player to be drafted was redshirt freshman wide receiver Drae Bowles.
The last to be picked, the so-called "Mr. Irrelevant,' was defensive coordinator John Jancek.
In between, 79 UT players and 10 coaches were selected by one of 10 "teams" whose captains are vying to win the "VOLympics."
The competition created by new coach Butch Jones is similar to the one he used at Cincinnati. Teams earn points by competing in VOLympic competitions, doing well in class and representing the program positively by volunteering, attending events and adhering to the dress code. Teams can be docked points if players sag their pants or skip a study hall.
The winning team will be crowned during a "Night of Champions."
UT said captains were selected by their teammates — not coaches — so the two players in charge of each team could be a good barometer of emerging leaders under the new coaching staff.
The captains are: Brian Randolph and Jason Croom (Team Power T), Antonio "Tiny" Richardson and A.J. Johnson (Team Checkerboard), Justin Worley and Eric Gordon (Team the Hill Gang), Marlon Walls and Rajion Neal (Team Rocky Top), Ja'Wuan James and Channing Fugate (Team Smokey), Corey Miller and Nathan Peterman (Team Neyland), Curt Maggitt and Marlin Lane (Team Orange & White), Zach Fulton and Raiques Crump (Team The Rock), Brent Brewer and James Stone (Team Vol. Navy) and Byron Moore and Maurice Couch (Team Vol. Walk).
